Crystal Thai is located in the rear of a strip shopping center in Owings Mills, MD. The restaurant is unassuming from the outside, and continues to be unassuming inside. On the multiple times we have been there, there have only been 2 waitstaff working. Though the restaurant is rarely full, on the occasional time it is busy, service can be slow.
Even with those observations, the food is fabulous! Our orders have always been cooked to perfection, be it a protein dish, noodles or curry. Sauces are fragrant and pungent, and those that are supposed to be spicy are hot! Their Pad Thai noodles are among the best I have had outside of Thailand. For vegetarians, most dishes on the menu are available with tofu, in addition to chicken or shrimp. I have not tried any of the desserts here, but they include typical westernized asian favorites such as fried ice cream. Prices are incredibly low considering the quality of the dishes.
FYI - Crystal Thai is BYOB.
